Electric power systems worldwide face radical transformationwith the need to decarbonise electricity supply, replace ageingassets and harness new information and communication technologies(ICT). The Smart Grid uses advanced ICT to control next generationpower systems reliably and efficiently. This authoritative guidedemonstrates the importance of the Smart Grid and shows how ICTwill extend beyond transmission voltages to distribution networksand customer-level operation through Smart Meters and SmartHomes.

Smart Grid Technology and Applications:

  • Clearly unravels the evolving Smart Grid concept with extensiveillustrations and practical examples.
  • Describes the spectrum of key enabling technologies requiredfor the realisation of the Smart Grid with worked examples toillustrate the applications.
  • Enables readers to engage with the immediate development of thepower system and take part in the debate over the future SmartGrid.
  • Introduces the constituent topics from first principles,assuming only a basic knowledge of mathematics, circuits and powersystems.
  • Brings together the expertise of a highly experienced andinternational author team from the UK, Sri Lanka, China andJapan.

Electrical, electronics and computer engineering researchers,practitioners and consultants working in inter-disciplinary SmartGrid RD&D will significantly enhance their knowledge throughthis reference. The tutorial style will greatly benefit final yearundergraduate and master’s students as the curriculumincreasing focuses on the breadth of technologies that contributeto Smart Grid realisation.

From the Back Cover:

This book provides discussion on the fundaments of the Smart Grid concept and then describes the technologies that are required for its realisation. It allows the reader to engage with the immediate development of the power system and to take part in the debate over the future Smart Grid.

The book opens with an overview on understanding the Smart Grid, and then is divided into three sections. Part 1 (Information and Communications Technologies') covers communication standards for the Smart Grid. Part Two discusses sensing, measurement, control and automation. Smart metering and demand side participation are described in detail, before distribution automation and the distribution management system. The last chapter of this section covers advanced transmission system operation. Part Three looks at power electronic and advanced components. First of all the topic of power electronics in power demand and supply is presented. Enabling technologies and advanced components are described last of all, giving a balanced view of Smart Grids.
